Graduate Student Orientation

Welcome to University of the Pacific!

We are excited to welcome you to the university and invite you to attend orientation before beginning your program of study. Orientation will provide you with general information about transitioning to Pacific as well as tools and services available to help you succeed in your graduate program. Orientation will include a general understanding about registering for courses, obtaining your student ID card, opportunity to talk with many resource offices on campus, and time to enjoy a beautiful campus tour that emphasizes your graduate student needs. We will conclude our day with a reception for the perfect opportunity to socialize with other incoming graduate students and Graduate Student Association (GSA).
